Fleetwood Mac – Fleetwood Mac – 1975

Fleetwood Mac had a lot of line up changes in the 8 years they existed before this album came out. However, if you put this on your record player when it came out, you were truly surprised. Of course, Christine McVie, wife of bass player John, had joined previously, but she had been a member of blue...

David Bowie – Let’s dance – 1983

This is, by popular consensus, the commercial sell out of David Bowie. In the 1970’s he was instrumental in developing glam rock (together with Marc Bolan and, to some extent Roxy Music). In the 1970’s he produced a string of entertaining, well produced albums and was respected in the pop community ...

Alice Cooper - From the inside – 1978

A little less shock rock, with no boa constrictors on stage, and an interesting concept. Somewhat tainted by disco (as, among many others, the Rolling stones and Kiss had that same year: remember Miss you and I was made for lovin’ you ? This is especially obvious in the title song and Wish I were bo...

Eric Clapton – Pilgrim – 1998

When Eric Clapton came clean, around 1981, his career became more or less hit or miss: a lot of commercial success (hence his Armani period with silly hairdo), early on as singer / guitarist of the Phil Collins band, some blues revival records ( From the cradle springs to mind), some live albums and...

Bob Dylan – Knocked out loaded – 1986

I once read some where in a review of this album that mr Dylan was either knocked out or loaded when he made this album, and I tend to agree with this statement: he might be out of his Christian phase, but not out of his writer’s block (at least where quality is concerned, perhaps he should have slo...

Peter Gabriel – So – 1986

Peter Gabriel has one of the best voices in pop music. Being instantly recognizable helps, but Mark Knopfler, Phil Collins and Bob Dylan are instantly recognizable, and you would hardly call them good singers. No, like Freddie Mercury, David Bowie and a few others he is a great performer . I am very...

The Grateful dead – American beauty – 1970

1970 was a great year for the Grateful Dead. Live/Dead was considered a master piece, almost equal to Get yer yaya’s out by the Stones and Live at Leeds by the Who, and in 1970 they released to important albums: Workingman’s dead and American beauty . Both feature well written songs in what one woul...

The Grateful Dead – Live/Dead -1969

It’s funny that a band that calls itself the Grateful Dead is best appreciated when they play live. This is their first live album (of about 60 live albums, available as regular cd's or digital download in FLAC (lossless) quality from the band’s web site). It also contains one of their signature son...

Steely dan – Can’t buy a thrill – 1972

This album is one of the best debut albums by a band in the 1970’s. Period. Also it’s about the only album by this band in this line –up, because afterwards mr Fagen and mr Becker thought: “Well, you know, we write these songs, including some pretty sharp lyrics. We sing most of them, and play on al...

Pink Floyd - The division bell - 1994

Beautiful recording, great sound effects, the singing and signature guitar playing ring some bells as well: hey, Pink Floyd lives! After listening to this more than once you realise that, by this time, Pink Floyd struggled to stay alive, to prove a point to their former bass player. Well, they did p...
